  Private Lessons    

There are many great musicians in the world, but teaching music is a gift as well as a skill. RSM’s private instructors are not only excellent musicians, but are also exceptional teachers who have been carefully selected by RSM’s administration. Most of our teachers have at least a B.A. degree in their perspective field. Just as most of our student teachers are currently in school earning their music degrees!

RSM offers private lessons for Piano, Guitar, Voice, Strings, Drums, Brass, Woodwinds and more! We now offer Virtual Lessons through Zoom! Our lessons run in increments of either

  • 30 minutes ($41.50 per lesson w/ approx. 10 lessons per session)

  • 45 minutes ($59.50 per lesson w/ approx. 10 lessons per session)

  • 60 minutes ($77.50 per lesson w/ approx. 10 lessons per session)


Lessons are arranged with your private teacher after an initial meeting with the school to determine which of our instructors would be the best match for each student.

To schedule your appointment for private lessons, please click here to send an email including your student’s name, grade level, age, instrument , and availability for lessons. We can begin the pairing process from there!
